A Profile of Selected Demographic and Socioeconomic Characteristics of Rural Georgia Counties.
Pieper, Hanns; Miller, H. Max
Demographic and selected socioeconomic changes which have occurred during the past decade in rural Georgia are delineated in this paper. The sample consisted of 50 counties, none of which had any urban population in 1960 or 1970. These counties, which are representative of rural regions which are losing or gaining population, were divided into 2 groups consisting of (1) 27 counties which had lost population and (2) 23 counties which had gained population. Demographic changes occurred in the areas of population size, age composition, sex composition, racial characteristics, and fertility. The selected socioeconomic characteristics included occupational characteristics, income, housing, health, education, and agriculture. The data for each group, given in tabular form, included a listing of the counties along with their population in 1960 and 1970, total age and sex composition, age and sex composition for the white and nonwhite populations, the births by race, percent of persons employed by occupation, income by percent of families in each income group, the housing characteristics, the number of physicians in private practice by county, selected educational characteristics, and selected farm characteristics.
